RIGHT? Gonna take this opportunity to talk about the whole of my feels, since I never talk on here—-
Wincest is the truest love story to ever be told, whether people want to be delusional and deny it or not. It just IS. Wincest doesn’t even have to ‘try’ to make anything Wincest. The show alone does it for us. We don’t have to read into ‘they looked at each other, it must be true love!’ delusional stuff so many Destiel shippers do. Wincest is RIGHT THERE out in the open, and we love it.
At the end of the day, you just can’t deny the facts. We’re talking about two boys here who grew up…fucked up. Like it or not, growing up the way they did, it was fucked up. They were restricted to either the backseat of a car, or a motel, and forbidden to make any kind of lasting human connection with anyone outside each other. That’s not cool, that messes with you psychologically.
If Sam and Dean had been a boy and a girl —like the kids from Flowers in the Attic, if you know that incest story—, they would have OF COURSE found comfort in each other, so why do people freak out at the thought of Sam and Dean finding comfort in each other just because they’re boys? Of course they did. They were the only thing that could make the other smile, the only thing that made them happy, the only thing that gave them some sense of ‘home’ some sense of ’constant’ in their ever moving, ever dangerous, ever terrifying lives. John wrote in his journal that for the longest time (if you’ve read the journal), basically, that the boys couldn’t even sleep if they weren’t in the same bed.
Dean was everything to Sam growing up. He was 4, and yet he had to be big brother, father, mother, best friend, confidant, partner, comfort..everything. And Sam was everything to Dean, whole universe. From those first wobbly steps, from the first reaching of pudgy grabby hands to be picked up, from his first word being a coo’d “Dee!”, Sam has been Dean’s world and Dean has been Sam’s.
John was hardly around and just… Seriously. There’s no bouncing back from that. There’s no ‘being okay’ with the other dying or moving on away from them. There just isn’t, and it makes NO SENSE when people try and rationalize it into being okay.
How can people really think that with growing up that intertwined that it’d be easy to ‘change’ and ‘live their own lives’, be detached from each other and both be able to survive? As if it’d be possible to detangle two grown trees, that grew up completely wrapped around each other, with tangled and intermingled roots. No way. No. Fucking. Way. One or both would die, and THAT is the show. It’s always been the heart of the show.
Their love is the most pure, gut wrenching, self sacrificing love there is. They love each other enough to fuck over the whole world. Wincest is the saddest, truest love story of all time.
They were made into this. Psychologically made into these irrationally, psychotically, erotically codependent individuals who can’t survive long without the other, and no. No, that can’t just ‘change’ or be ignored.
You don’t just wake up one day from being bipolar or schizophrenic. What they have is sticking with them. For life. There ain’t no coming back from it. These boys are dying together. Even in the show, if it ends, it ends with them either driving off into the sunset to hunt together, or with both of them dying together. There is no in between, and in our hearts as a fandom we all know this to be true, no matter how much it breaks our hearts.
So yes, their codependency might be ‘horrible’ for people like you and me who lived normal lives, but for Sam and Dean? In their case, with how they grew up, it’s something they just…they NEED it, you know? Like air. Like a heartbeat. Their codependency is something broken but it’s beautiful. To love someone that deeply, that all-consumingly, and unconditionally, that…just…guh all my friggin’ feels, man. People who hate on that, and hell, even Destiel shippers who try and cast Sam to the wayside, are just jealous that Dean will never love Cas like that. Ever. To even entertain the thought is blind delusion.
I’m not saying everyone ‘has’ to like Sam, and I’m not saying everyone ‘has’ to ship Wincest, but at least don’t be delusional about canon. Acknowledge Sam’s importance and necessity in Dean’s life for Dean to be happy. Anyone who thinks Dean could live happily ever after with Sam dead or pushed aside or disregarded, clearly doesn’t know Dean, doesn’t respect Dean, and views him as this shallow person. A good parent would never place a relationship in front of their kid, a good parent believes in ‘either my kid, or nothing’, and for the people out there who don’t ship Wincest, they should look at it at least like that. Dean raised Sam. He’s like a single parent taking care of his kid, there’s no way he’d push Sammy to the wayside for a relationship. He’d never screw over Sam for Cas’s sake. Not in a million years.
Anyway, long story short, as a Wincest shipper, I can say I’m not an ‘incest advocate’ or anything —rude when idjits assume—, but… This show. These two boys. With the way they grew up? With how hard they love each other? With them being consenting adults? Yeah. I see it and would never turn my back on that kind of pure love. It’s broken and so beautiful to me, and I accept it, and it’s glorious and they’re my OTP for life.
5Ever, my friends, and peace out~.
